@thelogicalview Maybe it was too logical...it happens to me too sometimes when I'm simply realistic about Kovalainen's (lack of) results as a race driver in F1 if people are still raving about him somehow. Anyway on Sauber I think it shows a couple of things. First of all their current predicament is the definitive proof that truely privately run midfield teams can't survive without a billionaire in the background willing to cover up the inevitable yearly losses for the privilege of roaming around in the paddock...which is fine as long as billionaires are willing to do that, not so fine if you want a healthy sport with some continuity. Second...big time sponsors are idiots. Sauber is a perfect team to sponsor, they have (had) all the right resources to make the final step, but instead they choose to pay $30 million/year to be on a rear wing of a McLaren or Ferrari, based on historic performance...
